Get involved

The Edinburgh Integration Joint Board (EIJB) are seeking to recruit two citizens with experience of using community health and/or social care services to join the Board. The role of service user members is to bring a service user perspective to the work of the EIJB in planning the future of health and social care services in Edinburgh.

As a service user member, you should have experience of using the health and or social care services for which the EIJB has responsibility. We need to recruit one person who has experience of using health services and one who has experience of using social care services, although we recognise that some people will have experience of using both types of service.

Service user members will:

  • live in Edinburgh
  • have a knowledge and understanding of the issues affecting users of health and social care services
  • be interested in the decision-making process around the planning of these services; and
  • be able to communicate a service user perspective effectively at meetings of the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board.

You can read more about the role by viewing the full role profile.
